We’ve seen a slew of major video game releases over the past few weeks, and more are arriving this November. After Gears of War 4, Battlefield 1, and COD: Infinite Warfare hit both the physical and virtual stores recently, we’ll finally be able to play Dishonored 2 tomorrow. Watch Dogs 2, meanwhile, will be here before the end of the month. Keeping with tradition, launch trailers for the two games have just hit the web.
The highly anticipated sequel to 2012’s Dishonored promises more stealth, magic, and (optional) murder. Set 15 years after the first title, the new game features 2 playable characters: original assassin Corvo Attano and the now grown-up Emily Kaldwin.
In addition to some all-new spells and abilities, Dishonored 2 gets another all-star voice cast, including Daredevil’s Vincent D’Onofrio and Rosario Dawson, Sam Rockwell, and Narcos’ Pedro Pascal.
Bethesda recently released the minimum and recommended PC specs for Dishonored 2. They’re pretty similar to what’s required for most major PC games these days, such as 60GB of storage space and a Nvidia GTX 660 as the minimum GPU. Right now, those with early copies of the game say it suffers from major performance issues. Hopefully, this will be fixed with the day-one patch, and it won't become another Batman: Arkham Knight.
There have been a number of Watch Dogs 2 videos released since June. And while the game doesn’t arrive on the PC until November 29, the console version is released next week, hence the launch trailer.
It's already been revealed that protagonist Marcus Holloway stands accused of a crime he didn’t commit by the Central Operating System’s (ctOS 2.0) predictive algorithms. We now get to see how the hacker and his Deadsec friends are fighting back against injustice.
Anyone who likes the look of Watch Dogs 2 and is in the market for a new monitor or SSD should check out Samsung’s promotion. The company is giving away copies of the game with its range of quantum dot gaming monitors and solid-state drives.
